A few days away

The girls and I went away for a few days over half term.  It was nice and relaxing and the afternoons were spent like this:

My brother and his family live up near Lincoln (Trudi and I waved to each other virtually) and it was FREEZING.  He has a much bigger house than us and it takes a lot longer to warm up! So obviously drink was the answer!  Such a shame the weather got so cold after our lovely drive up there


We went to an embroidery exhibition - the first picture shows little boxes with scenes inside them: my pictures don't do them justice, they were about 4 x 7".  And also some embroidered boxes
So, nothing in the sewing line to show you: I got on with some knitting instead.  But I did get my hair cut and coloured just before we went away.  I had been growing it but it got to be such a mess.  I went to a new hairdresser and I think she did a fantastic job: there is nothing like a good haircut to make you feel better

  10. I agree it's always good to get away for while, blows away the cobwebs as they say. The embroidery is really skilled. My friend's mum is doing the city and guilds embroidery in Chelmsford and they always have a really good exhibition too. I love your hair, suits you a treat.
